With a recommendation on the cover by Neil Gaiman and a comparison of a Futurama plot written by Terry Pratchett, this book comes highly recommended.

I must say, I was disappointed. It was readable, but very difficult. This book reads like a stream of consciousness writing from the author. No one is very solid, there is no development and the plot jumps all over the place.

There are one or two bizarre twists in the series. Not interesting ones or fun ones, just twists for the sake of having them.

I read this book almost the entire time with high hopes, praying that perhaps the ending would redeem the first 200+ pages. I was unfortunately not that fortunate.

I found this book to be a major disappointment. The cover blurbs would leave you to believe you were in for a rare treat, and that you'd be looking forward to the sequel.

Unfortunately, the reality is that the covers are the best part of the book, and the only use I'd have for a sequel would be as tinder for a campfire.

It's about what it sounds like. There's bikinis and planets. By which I mean, it's pretty good.

In the swinging sixties, Las Vegas rookie cop Wayne Norton was a straight arrow--though not exactly the sharpest one tn the quiver. Then his girlfriend's mafioso father threw him into an experimental cryogenic sleep chamber--and forgot to leave a wake up call. Wayne is revived 300 years later, in a world where nothing is as it seems, everyone treats himlike an incompetent dolt, and he's very, very confused. All in all, not much has changed, or has it......
